REGIONALE is the follow-up of the styrian state exhibitions. Since its foundation in 2008 the biennial for contemporary art has taken place twice. Its aim is to generate discourse and debates on the meaning of 'region' in general and specifically of that region, which has been awarded. In the year 2012 it will take place in district of Murau. Murau is one of the most densely wooded areas and one of those with the highest demographic retrogressions in Styria. Therefore the region is confronted with many challenges: economic competition, mobility and new forms of social life/diversity, which collides which a long social continuum.

The program of REGIONALE12 follows the leitmotif 'Stadt.Land.Fluss.' - a title borrowed from the German parlor game 'City.County.River'. Can one still speak of 'old' rural qualities? Or the dividing concept of the urban and the rural as industrialization generated? How new or even exemplary concepts are applicable in the Murau District form the scope of the program, which will equally address both the future of the district as well as the 'now' in a global sense. For more than one year, three topics and three spacial „centres' with 25 projects (exhibitions, perfomances and interventions) and approximately 200 participants have been involved in the process of the realization of REGIONALE12.
31 days of REGIONALE12 kick off with a three-day opening celebration, beginning on June 22 in the Town of Murau, continuing on the 23rd in St. Lambrecht and Oberwoelz, and moving on through St. Ruprecht and Ramingstein in Lungau, into Krakautal valley on the 24th.
